Music Video made from original late 1970’s super-8 surf/skate footage for my band Rosie and The Thorns.
In the late seventies Andrew Seymour and Murray Ingersole used an 8mm camera to film their friends (including my husband Mark) surfing, skateboarding and just goofing around. They made two 30 minute films, Little Tuesday and Surfarosso Antiko, and presented an entire show including cinema advertising by ‘Val Lander’ for such items as Murray’s Durries (fictional) and Rock Pool surfboards. They cued the soundtrack live from a record player, with epic tunes from bands like The Doors and Fleetwood Mac. The live production was recorded onto VHS and resurfaced recently to be transferred to DVD for family and friends. The footage captures the lifestyle of the late seventies in Australia so well that I couldn’t resist using it for a video clip. Having the cover of a Beach Boys song on the album made it the obvious choice…
Client: Self Project: Tamworth Festival Video Diary Role: Producer, Director, Digital Video Editing
A light-hearted look at my trip to Tamworth in 2008 as a Toyota Star Maker Finalist. This video has over 15,000 views on YouTube so far!
It was an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G time and really made me feel like I had found a musical home. While I’m not a mainstream country artist, the Country music sensibilities of honesty, story and melody resonate with my songwriting – and we found a whole new audience!
